Another exciting addition to Converse.js 6.0.0 is support for message retraction (i.e. removal) by the author (XEP-0424) or by a groupchat admin (XEP-0425).
These are brand new XEPs that I helped author and I'm not aware of other #xmpp clients which already support them. Hopefully they will do so soon.
@jcbrand i'm new to the XMPP world and wow, i'm surprised that such important features were missing. thanks for writing and implementing the XEPs; this can make everyone's XMPP experience a lot better!
I agree they should have existed sooner already.
However, it's difficult to do something like this in a clean a future-proof way for a federated and backwards-compatible protocol.
No this is unrelated.

@0 Yes, probably just an "edit" hack.
